Lebanese veterans suspend central bank blockade - al-Jadeed TV

BEIRUT, May 13 (Reuters) - Retired soldiers suspended their protest on Monday in front of Lebanon’s central bank against proposed budget cuts, Lebanese al-Jadeed television said.

The veterans blockaded the central bank to warn the government against curbing their benefits in an escalation of strikes against plans to cut state spending. (Reporting by Ellen Francis and Amina Ismail Editing by Peter Graff)
